Learning has a lot of terms in it. Just handling the vocabulary can be a challenge. I tried to think of something to help. This is what I came up with. I call it a vocabulary builder because that’s what I hope it will do: build your vocabulary.
This book is a glossary of terms, though some of the entries are quite long. I’ve included all the names and terms you need to know. If you really want to save money, this is what I would buy. With it and this site, you’ll be all set.
Here are some examples:
assimilation. For Piaget, adding of new information to a schema category. In a card catalog it would be adding material to the current card. In contrast to accommodation (adding new categories).
autism. A neurodevelopmental disorder whose symptoms appear at about age two and is diagnosed at about three years old. Tends to run in families but no single cause has been identified. A spectrum of symptoms is seen, not everyone gets all the symptoms. It is a complex disorder with several subgroups, including Asperger syndrome. Rett syndrome (which primarily affect girls) is sometimes included. Some children start off with symptoms and others seem to have normal development but then regress. Much more common in boys than girls. Symptoms include social deficits, resistant to change, limited focus, self-injury, and repetitive behaviors (stacking objects, everything must be lined up). Some have limited or no language ability.
autobiographical memory. Episodic memory. A type of declarative memory. Long-term personal memory of places, times and events. Autobiographical information. Often said to be in right temporal lobe.
backward conditioning. In classical conditioning, backward conditioning presents the food before the bell. Not as quickly learned as forward conditioning (bell before food) but common in real life situations.
It’s ready for you now. It’s 10 bucks and money back guaranteed.
My version of a study guide is a collection of videos, quizzes, stories, and study materials. Think of it as a multimedia book designed for everyone who uses this site, not just my current students. It is more than a glossary and less than an encyclopedia. It takes me about a year to build one.
Study Guide Coming!
need a few more people to show interest in a study guide before I can justify taking time away from other projects. If you're interested, I'll add you to the list, and send you progress notes.
